1st gear job up the hill with a fully laden car but what a place. We were greeted by Mikel on arrival and a more affable and jovial host you could not wish to meet. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable with great views across the valley. The evening meal and breakfast were excellent and Mikel took time to... More

This was our second visit, so far, to this enchanting and special place. The house itself, a beautiful restored Basque farmhouse, is exquisite (we especially love the sitting room on the first floor) and so comfortable. Mikel will cook you a delicious meal, taking into account any dietary requirements if you let him know in advance, and he really is... More

We booked via Sawdays but from there on in we communicated direct with Mikel. Google translate does a great job of helping with English to Basque! After decanting from the ferry at Santander we drove up the mountain and arrived at dusk and were welcomed by Mikel. He had prepared a meal of courgette soup, pork in a cream sauce... More

It took us quite a while to locate this lovely old house which has been beautifully restored by the very genial host who catered for all our needs. Lovely, comfortable room and bathroom. We were greeted with the offer of wine, tea or coffee and settled down in the flower decked patio. So peaceful and restorative. Dinner was a bit... More

Our stay last year with Mikel was shortened unexpectedly but we are returning this year! While we have had many wonderful hosts, I do not know of any who have been more helpful in terms of helping us plan our adventures. We love history, art, food and wine, and local culture. Mikel is a great guide to the Basque Country.... More

Nothing bad to say. Charming, homey, fabulous. Mikel and silent, fluffy Sinxo were great hosts during our stay on the mountain. Mikel is a fabulous cook - still thinking about the pork loin he prepared. The bed was supremely comfortable and the room spacious and warm.

Mikel is a great host. A source of information and enthusiasm for Bilboa, everything Basque and Spain. He is also an excellent chef. Our tom tom had a struggle with the cat's cradle that is the Bilboa road system but as you enter the quiet of the Zeberio Valley you know your life is improving. A steep 1 in 3... More
